Police said they found Rina Corsi, 42, and her 1-year-old, Jackson Chancio, lying in the road.

Police said witnesses told them that Corsi was pushing her son in a baby stroller, walking along with another child who was walking, when she pushed the stroller into the travel portion of the road to avoid debris.
